Someone has asked me to comment on the results of the Stanley Cup Hockey finals and the riots in Vancouver.
The telling astrology of game 7 was the fact that the transiting moon was in Sagittarius – this favours the visitor/foreigner. That it was a full moon and an eclipse too increases the imbalance and intensity of it all, making the game one-sided. That the sun was in Gemini alludes to the apparent winner (going into the game, the Canucks were favoured to win) rather than the actual winner – the moon in Sagittarius, leading to a (surprise for some) victory for the Boston Bruins. Eclipses are traditionally considered as ominous, although I don’t ascribe to this fatalistic interpretation.
The humiliation was doubled (Gemini) because we/the Canucks lost on home turf. The extremity of what happened after the game in the city is another statement on the very damaged collective psyche – how we reach for violence first as a way of expressing our distorted emotions –not only the disappointment over the game, but the general frustration of ordinary lives channelled into one great big ball of destructive energy. Aggression crossing the line into violence is far too ready trigger within the general collective psyche. At least those rioting elsewhere, such as in Middle East, have a worthy cause to fight for. I am usually so proud of my city, last night I felt shame and deep disappointment, not about the game loss, but about the shocking barbaric display in Vancouver’s downtown core.
Luongo’s progressed moon is in Virgo, which can be a weak position. No matter how hard you try with a Virgo moon, there’s always more you could have done, or someone who can do it better. (At least that is a typical psychology, you aren’t damned if you have this position! Nothing beats Virgo’s skill. The moon in Virgo can be accomplished too, let’s not forget Luongo’s successes.) Tim Thomas on the other hand, had the destiny stars on his side. (His progressed Mercury/Moon was right on the lunar eclipse karmic axis (south node), which duplicates his own birthchart, and the transit of Venus trine Saturn was favourable to his Aquarius moon. He was so cool, collected, and confident throughout. He knew he was going to win, he had it written all over his demeanor. This was in sharp contrast to Luongo’s hope-I-can emotions. (Luongo’s birth moon is in Cancer, which can run the gamut of up and down emotional tides.)
June 1 delivers the first of three eclipses in close succession. Beginning in Siberia and western China, this partial solar eclipse travels high across the northern hemisphere, across the Canadian north, and reaches Iceland, etc. by sunset. The recent volcanic eruption in that country can be attributed to this eclipse. While the exact date is certainly one to watch, the effect of an eclipse can be witnessed in the months preceding and following. It can continue to be of influence for months, sometimes years.
When an eclipse activates, it accelerates the pace on our evolution, this by manifesting our next task, learning, or relationship. In other words, eclipses can be fate generating. Solar eclipses tend to produce significant events in the outer world while lunar eclipses tend to hold more influence over our private lives, although both can do either. An eclipse can come and go with little notice in your life unless it makes a direct aspect to your chart. If your birthday falls on an eclipse, you will find the year to be pivotal.
Saturn in harmony to the Gemini Solar Eclipse of June 1 suggests tangible progress is more possible now. If you have a need to communicate, a project or cause to promote, a significant change to make, or a deal to negotiate, know that a productive platform is now set. Having said that, stay flexible and negotiable, and watch for something more to be revealed or exposed. The X factor or hidden element could be an advantageous missing key. Then again, the unexpected could be unleashing, unhinging or even blind-siding. You should be readily able to tell which way the wind will blow for you. If you are the right track, the eclipses can be enhancing. If you haven’t figured out that you are on the wrong track, the eclipses will make sure to inform you.
Pisces is the archetype attributed to the hidden or latent potential, to ultimate value and meaning, our unconscious ideals, and to ultimate other too. Neptune, ruler of Pisces turns retrograde on June 3, just after June 1st solar eclipse. Chiron in Pisces, turns retrograde on June 8. When a planet changes direction its potency is increased. When Pisces is animated, we can get inspired and swept away, or we can hit disillusionment and loss. Duality, contradiction (Gemini), illusion, confusion, drain, even paranoia (Pisces) can be part of the eclipse mix.
Ceres is a major feature of all three eclipses. (Orbiting between Mars and Jupiter, Ceres is classed as a dwarf planet.) On an emotional and karmic level, Ceres in dynamic tension to the karmic axis suggests the resurfacing of significant unfinished business and a re-energizing of subconscious complexes. On the event level, Ceres in Pisces is another conduit for Mother Nature. Weather extremes offer plenty of examples of her present state. Like the weather, when aggression and anger is released, it can rage beyond control. June 15’s lunar eclipse path across the Middle East suggests the tidal waves of change continue to stay highly activated in that region.
The positive ignition of Ceres in Pisces can unlock a secret doorway that reveals a much sought after potential. For some, it can be a time of realization of an ultimate destiny, in other words, the dream can become real. For others, what can reveal may be the stark truth or reality you hoped you’d never have to face. Either way, destiny has scheduled a day of reckoning.
The lunar eclipse (full moon in Sagittarius) on June 15 is notable for several reasons. Firstly, it is of particularly long duration. Lasting 100 minutes, it suggests there is a lot of extra energy exchange is happening in the cosmos. The entire event will be seen from the eastern half of Africa, the Middle East, central Asia, and Western Australia. None of the eclipse will be visible from North America. This eclipse is intensified by its proximity to the Galactic Center. (The eclipse sun and Mercury are in close opposition, Ceres squares it, and the lunar eclipse moon in Sagittarius crosses it. That is a huge transmission download.) This lunar eclipse, the solar eclipse of Jan 4, and the upcoming July 1st solar eclipse references back to 1992. What was going on for you then? What were the circumstances of your life, what changes occurred? An entire chapter of your evolution has completed and a new one is now beginning. It is now time to take what you have learned and apply it to the next level. Do you realize it was about 19 years ago that personal computers were first making it into our lives? (It’s been 17 years since the Canucks made it to the hockey play-offs. This time, it should be a victory run.)
After nearly five months in retrograde, Saturn stations direct on June 12. When any planet is retrograde, we are taken through an experiential intensification chapter. It forces an added degree of separation in order for awareness to grow. The purpose of Saturn’s retrograde cycle is to reformulate your consciousness, to give you a testing experience of the world and of your inner reality too. With this reprogramming cycle now complete, Saturn’s return to direct motion suggests we are now sufficiently fuelled for action. The lunar eclipse catalyst of June 15 can accelerate the necessary confrontation with reality.
Last but certainly not least, on June 4, Jupiter, the big planet, advances into Taurus. Jupiter takes twelve years to make a complete journey around the zodiac. Once every twelve years, it will visit your sign and as it does, it launches a new cycle of envisioning and growth. Since the end of January, Jupiter has tenanted Aries. No doubt we can all agree this first half of the year has absolutely sped by. Where-ever it goes, Jupiter brings increase. Its influence has added greatly to the other fired up Aries transits (the long term transit of Uranus and the shorter transits of Mars, Mercury, and Venus in Aries).
For this past five months, Jupiter in Aries’ expansion program has accelerated the building of our experiential framework. The sign shift to Taurus will add the “fill” and better define what it is that we are really working with. Positively, Jupiter in Taurus brings more to work with and to aspire toward. It puts an added emphasis on the amassing of (more and better) resources and on the productive application of those resources. Progressively we will gain a better knowledge of what is most viable and what can produce more substantially. While Jupiter tenants Taurus, we find a greater appreciation for stability and security. When Jupiter tenants Taurus, everything of value increases in worth. Too, everything of value can cost more, including money itself. We place a much higher premium on the things we want, and the things we already own. Because this is so, we can find a greater readiness to stay put, to make commitments, to drop anchor. Too, we find ourselves more willing to do whatever it takes in order to have and to hold.
Jupiter in Taurus can create greater consistency and it can steady the growth curve too, but know that the rest of the stellar deck, especially Uranus in Aries, a wild-card influence, will keep us firing on all cylinders for some time to come.
The downside of Jupiter in Taurus is getting stuck in a rut, or getting stuck with too much. We can get bogged down materially, emotionally, and physically too. It will come as no surprise to see national deficits continue on a steady growth curve. Jupiter will remain in facilitating aspect to Pluto in Capricorn for this next year. For governing bodies, corporations, and individuals alike, it is an aspect that suggests an increase of sobering realism, along with a greater need to further secure and maintain what is most important, necessary, or valuable. The latest announcement from bank of Canada is that it will hold its rate steady for now. This is based on the concerns of the precariousness of the US dollar and world economies.
Jupiter in aspect to Pluto in Capricorn increases the need to stay accountable and responsible, and to better define boundaries. It can prompt larger scale implementation of tougher sanctions and necessary measures. We can already see this happening with UN and the situation in the Middle East and elsewhere. More corporate, government, and bank belt tightening is to be expected. The downside of Jupiter in aspect to Pluto is that those in authority will attempt to throw their weight around more. Tyrants, the corrupt, those with the fight and might can gain added momentum, while those who are already under pressure can be burdened by extra weight.
Positively, Jupiter in facilitating aspect to Pluto suggests we can handle a lot more than usual. The aspect can buy us more time so that we can create greater effectiveness. In order to use Jupiter to your maximum benefit, figure out what is most lucrative or generating for you, what will offer the most room for growth, and direct your maximum attention toward nurturing it along.

ARIES (March 21- April 19)
Jupiter leaves your sign as of June 4, but you’ll continue to receive ample benefits as the big guy settles into a Taurus groove. Through June of next year, Jupiter will help you to grow your assets and resources, and your resourcefulness too. You’ll discover you have a lot more going for you now. Jupiter forms a facilitating aspect (trine) to Pluto in Capricorn for most of its stay through Taurus. For the next year, you’ll find yourself gaining favour from those in positions of authority and influence. You’ll find you have more sway and swagger now. Bosses, parents, officials, check signers can ask more of you too, but if so, it’s because they place faith in your ability to perform. If you have hankering to try self employment, it can be a profitable year to launch your own show. Of course, the added responsibility will be significant, but Jupiter/Pluto suggests one of your greatest resources is the ability to work under pressure and to handle more than you usually do. You should find you gain substantial results for your efforts in most areas.
The June 1st eclipse can put the spotlight on communications, learning, networking, sales and marketing. You can make significant links and inroads with people, both business and personal. Whether to do with financial matters or more personal concerns, this new moon eclipse can accelerate a karmic circumstance with friends or siblings. Remember, the eclipse will only be significant if it makes a direct contact to your chart. Otherwise it will operate simply as a regular new moon cycle. Relationship platforms set in place now can serve you well not only in the short haul, but for an extended time to come. The lunar eclipse on June 15 can bring news, an announcement, a visitor, or an opportunity to travel, promote, perform, or publish. Legal matters can reach a turning point peak. This eclipse can set wheels in motion and/or set you free in some unexpected way.
TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)
Start of the month finds you taking care of business just fine. At least it can appear that way. The solar eclipse of June 1 is in facilitating aspect to Saturn in Libra, which suggests you are able to accomplish what you need to. Work and health seems to be coming along well too. Still, Mercury and Neptune suggest you may not see all that you should. Don’t assume others feel and think like you do. You may be in for a surprise. This solar eclipse suggests that if you put the work into it, you’ll gain substantial benefit. Likely, you’ll gain from more than one angle and in short order too. Give it a big upfront push, and you’ll soon see it isn’t as much work as you anticipated. Once you see the start of visible results, it will encourage you to keep going and you’ll find yourself off to the races. One thing builds on another; it’s stepping-stone time.
You have done a lot of living and growing in the past twelve years. You’ll use it as a positive springboard now. Jupiter’s advance into Taurus (June 4) will help you to take a huge step forward. You are wiser, more experienced, and more confident in yourself. And it shows. Self honouring/self respect is your best starting point. Stay ambitious and take yourself seriously. Your ability to achieve something of worth and substance is more possible than ever. This is so at the material, emotional, and soul level.
The opportune lunar eclipse on June 15 can bring something out into the open, perhaps surprisingly so. You could find circumstances head in an unexpected direction. A relationship that is not built on honesty could suddenly take an exit. (Perhaps you were duping yourself on this one.) Financial matters can escalate; you could face hidden costs or unexpected added expenses. Whether business or personal, the departure of another may provide you with added advantage. By default, you may find the opportunity to step into a more significant position or role. The eclipse can put you on a hunt – for more pay, words to convey, or places to be. Too, you could find yourself on a mission to track someone down. Venus and Saturn suggest whatever opens up or catapults you forward has the mark of benefit and improvement. Be willing to give up to get. What you’ll gain can be the better than you have had yet.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
As stated in my intro, if your birthday falls on the eclipse dates of June 1 or June 15, you are in for a pivotal year. Those of you born June 12 – 18 can face a significant fork in the road threshold now too. Firstly, let me address the June 1st eclipse. If you are born June 1 – 3, you may be feeling loose-ended, uncertain, confused, or lost. Stay put until you get better clued in and watch for synchronicity to give you a signal. Hidden potentials can suddenly reveal themselves. Once that happens, jump into action. With Saturn in facilitating aspect for this solar eclipse, it suggests you are reaching a time of significant personal achievement. A contract or diploma can put you on a solid platform and define your life for some time to come. Becoming a parent or a newly wed can do it for you too. The eclipse suggests it is ripe time to step forward, make it official or to legitimize yourself/your needs in some significant way. Circumstances can fall into place readily and well. There is so much that can be cemented or anchored now. Confidence in yourself, your lover, and your children can grow. Creative, educational, and business endeavours can be carried to a successful peak.
Jupiter’s entrance into Taurus is also one of unlocking hidden potential, and of turning hopes into realities. This is a particularly creative and fertile location for Jupiter, so by all means use it well and allow yourself to explore and experiment more. You’ll never know what it can do for you unless you give it a try. Jupiter in Taurus can be a staging or gestating influence. What is developing or waiting in the wings will come into fuller view next year when Jupiter enters Gemini (June 2012.)
The lunar eclipse on June 15 can bring the future into the present lightening quick. Positively it can see you take a big step forward re family matters, real estate, health, or work. It can make a relationship or professional endeavour take flight, or it can create a greater distance between you and it, or you and another. Aim for win/win, but recognize that you should not have to bend too far. You deserve what you ask for. Make sure you stand firm for what you truly want or truly believe is right for you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
There is likely to be more going on with you than most would suspect. You probably don’t know it all yourself. The Gemini solar eclipse on June 1 is draws attention to what’s under the cover. Things can be brewing or stewing with or without your full awareness. It can be one of plans in the works, secrets, hidden messages or potentials, of inklings, impressions, and premonitions. This eclipse is an excellent catalyst for the writer, musician or artist in you. As Jupiter situates in Taurus, you will be better able to give that vision its shape and form. The eclipse new moon cycle also launches a good time to study, to heal, or to dive deeper into spiritual practice. If a sabbatical or retreat is calling you, find time for it. For some, a developing new relationship can require more one on one time.
If you have been unsure about what comes next, both for the short and long term, watch for the informing lunar eclipse on June 15 to help you to fill in more of the picture. This productive eclipse brings a good time to start a new program or a new hunt. Tried and failed previously? Try again. You should come up with more this time.
Uranus in Aries can set you on a whole new career or personal life track. This can occur as a time as ripe moment, or it could come on abruptly. Even so, know that you can’t go back, you must go forward.
Reformatting your life can exciting or jarring, but know it’s the only right direction. Trust that you’ll land on your feet, and trust that that more and better lies on the road ahead. It does. Jupiter one year tour through Taurus can help you to find a better place for yourself in the world, and it can help you to get better situated inside yourself too. This Jupiter transit can short the distance to a desired goal, so take action while the stars make it easy for you to change and gain. Your ambition can become your new reality. On a business note, Jupiter in Taurus can help you to solidify your client base and to groom more customer loyalty. Your social life can fall into a good groove now too. Aspire higher, choose a new you, and make it quality over quantity every step of the way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You may find yourself reading and responding to the world in a new way. Too, an idea, subject matter, or particular person may be growing on you. What shapes up now sets an important foundation. The connections and inroads you make now are ones that will stay relevant to you for sometime to come. The anchoring solar eclipse of June 1st can cement relationships and answer some of your more pressing questions. It can be a fortuitous time to sign a contract, to make a formal commitment, or to hire an agent. Join a group, community, social network, association, etc. It’s also advantageous time to increase your knowledge base. Sign up for classes or conferences, get professional training or advice. This eclipse and Jupiter’s advance into Taurus delivers sets in play the next stage of your reinvention program. You are still on an acceleration growth curve, but now, you should find that you can create more stability, consistency and sure-footedness along the way.
Jupiter in Taurus helps you to lay important groundwork. The start of a new life and/or new professional path shows plenty of lucrative potential for the road ahead. Jupiter in facilitating aspect to Pluto suggests the ability to manifest something of substantial worth. This is so regarding material growth, but more importantly, it is so regarding a piece of priority soul work. In both regards, you are reaching a time is ripe phase.
The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on June 15 can get things really cooking. You’ll see the energy build in the days prior to the eclipse and you can expect the intensity to extend for days after the eclipse too. The lunar eclipse can bring an event of note, or it can bring you spotlight attention. It’s a good time to perform, promote, interview, exhibit, announce, or aim to make a big splash. Whether it’s a hello or a goodbye, it is a time to make your move. A gamble can net a big pay-off. Take a risk on your future, but of course, don’t venture what you can’t afford to loose. This eclipse can bring reward, but it is one that you have (karmically) earned.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Thanks to the solar eclipse in Gemini, more than one priority claims your attention now. Perhaps more than one priority individual claims your attention now too. Important foundations are now being laid, so stay ambitious and keep working on it, you will get somewhere good. In the not too distance future, you should start to see more substantial returns on your investments, be they your efforts, time, money, or even sacrifice (although that word should be wiped from your dictionary – let’s use “purposeful intent” instead.)
Jupiter’s advance into Taurus is a confidence builder. For this next year, you should notice more substantial opportunities and better options appear. Too, you can start to gain a clearer sense of where your future is leading. This Jupiter placement helps you to design more realistic goals for yourself, and to implement the steps that can take you there. If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way to make it happen. Trust in your ability to make better choices, to stay self-consistent, and well motivated.
Reputation and status grow more important to you now too, and it is an ideal time to upgrade both. You are entering a cycle when you can set better personal boundaries and keep them too. Jupiter in facilitating aspect (trine) to Pluto can help you to grow your business, to become better known as a recognized professional or authority of note. Jupiter in Taurus (through June, 2012) can be an ideal transit for getting a degree or other certification. Too, it can bring a publishing project to fruition. It bodes well for gaining notoriety for your talents and accomplishments. For some, relocation can provide better opportunities. For others, Jupiter aligned with Pluto can manifest a solid and committed relationship.
Those born Sept 14- 19 can feel the effects of the full moon lunar eclipse on June 15 the strongest. You could feel stretched between a rock and hard place, especially where family or home related matters are concerned. It can be time to speak your truth, to get it out and off your chest. The eclipse can prompt wheels or plans to spin faster. There can be important news, an announcement, a departure, a new consideration, a change of residence, a need to act fast. In the heat of the moment, you could make an impetuous decision or move. It can signal the time to make significant change in your living arrangements. It is a good time to start the hunt for your next bests. At the very least, the eclipse can signal a threshold crossing into summer vacation. (Isn’t it about time we saw summer?)
LIBRA (Sept 22-Oct 22)
If you are born around Oct 3, you will feel the most benefit from the solar eclipse of June 1. Saturn’s hook-up to the eclipse can bring you to a successful personal or professional plateau. Business, social, or personal, partnerships and alliances can be at optimum now.
You should find you can communicate and connect the dots exceptionally well. Venus in Gemini (June 9 to July 3) makes for harmonious and easy social interaction, and profitable business too. Your days are about to get easier to handle. For the most part life will now maintain a good flow. Watch for Mars to spruce up your social life and love life, and to put you on the get-go even more once it advances into Gemini on June 20 (to Aug 3.)
Jupiter’s advance into Taurus sets the stage for financial gain. For some, an inheritance or some other financial cushion can add good padding to your security. Or, it can be a time to sort out banking or borrowing matters, to put legal steps, prenups and such in place, to seek better pay, or to raise your prices or profit margins. Too, Jupiter’s one year tour through Taurus can see you make a substantial investment, perhaps in education, marketing, relocation, real estate, etc. It is the right time to take such risks, especially if you see it as a stepping stone move. Your debt load can increase too, so make sure you keep a good handle on it. While Jupiter in Taurus is a signature for greater self sufficiency and self reliance, it is also an influence that can manifest an intimate relationship or see the bonds on an existing relationship grow stronger.
The lunar eclipse on June 15 can reveal a hidden potential or bring something unexpected into the open. Use extra caution when travelling and keep a close watch on your belongings. As is common of a full moon, things can easily get blown out of proportion. You can get carried away or swept away. Positively, an opportunity or discovery can set wheels in motion. You could find the perfect “it”.
SCORPIO (Oct 23~Nov 22)
So good, so far. The new moon solar eclipse of June 1 can steer partnership and financial matters onto a more even keel. You’ll come to appreciate your present plateau even more now that Jupiter has advanced into Taurus. This Jupiter placement can increase your desire to hold steady right where you are. It is not that you’ll stop growing and evolving, of course, but rather that you will do so with less trepidation and a greater sense of self assuredness. Jupiter will tenant Taurus through June of next year. In this time, a particular relationship can grow more substantial. It is an important anchor for you. Jupiter’s exit out of Aries can take the emphasis off health, work struggles, or other problematic concerns. Your ability to connect socially and professionally becomes easier now too. Your client base and reputation can grow steadily from here. The influence of Ceres can help you to be more open and to share parts of yourself that you usually hold in reserve. Your creativity can flourish now. Too, you’ll find that you are now more ready, willing and able to merge your whole self with an ultimate other.
The lunar eclipse on June 15 delivers an especially potent full moon in Sagittarius. This eclipse catalyst can see you take a huge leap of faith and/or a big step forward. Once the wheels are set in motion, there will be no turning back. What benefits you, brings instant benefit to another also.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22~Dec21)
Your social world can be especially rewarding now, thanks to the June 1 eclipse. Rapport and like-mindedness can be readily found, even more so than at other times. The feedback is good; you are likely to feel honoured, understood, respected, and appreciated. Professional and personal teamwork runs quite smoothly now; the sense of feeling well integrated into a community or group can be quite satisfying. Those of you born Dec 2, 3 can receive the fullest benefits of this solar eclipse cycle.
Jupiter’s one year tour through Taurus, starting June 4, can help you to make your days more productive. You should find you can now get to work and to stay consistent with good for you routines and other projects. When you look back you will see that you have accomplished heaps. This Jupiter placement sets a favourable backdrop for job security. You should come to better appreciate where you are at. Even if it isn’t perfect, you are likely to admit that it is better than it was.
Both the solar eclipse and the lunar eclipse on June 15 can be especially influential for those of you born Dec 14, 15, and through to Dec 19. Of course the lunar eclipse is a full moon in Sagittarius, so it will influence all in someway or other. Watch for a missing blank to fill in, for something to be revealed, for an insight or inspired moment. The eclipse can bring a departure or arrival of significance; it can call you to action, and or create the moment that launches it all.
CAPRICORN (DEC 22~JAN 19)
Have you recently felt perplexed or challenged by a particular conflict, issue or dilemma? Thanks to the June 1 solar eclipse, you should start to gain a better handle on it now. Some things will sort out on their own, other things you will simply have to live with. Even so, it is easier to cope with now. Let this issue move to the background now. You have other priorities to address. Keep focused where the getting is good.
For this next year, you will be able to optimize on the best Jupiter in Taurus has to offer. In general you should find that you are enjoying your life more and that it provides you with more opportunity where you desire it the most. See what an attitude shift will do for you? Continue to focus on making yourself happier, and on gifting yourself more. Your love life can grow richer, your kids can give you more joy, creativity, professional, and personal satisfaction can grow more substantial. You can feel better appreciated by those who love you too. Of course, life is never perfect, but you are now learning how to play up/soak up the good parts of it and to be more accepting of the rest.
The lunar eclipse on June 15 can bring you insights, reveal a hidden advantage, or clue you in through some unexpected way. You can read between the lines, and/or see more than others may want to reveal. Too, you may be able to pull strings from a background position, to play a hidden ace, or you may have to step in where another cannot. Listen to your intuition more. Follow through on a hunch or impulse. It can be time to relinquish, give up, let go, or to set plans in motion, or to take time out and to find some quality time to yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20~Feb 18)
Do you feel like life is humming along now and that you are in a period of stellar grace or stellar reprieve? The June 1 solar eclipse has energized one of the very best areas of your chart. Those born Jan 29, 30 receive the best of this eclipse. If you haven’t noticed the effects of this eclipse, that’s okay too. In reality, it is life as should be. As the month advances, you should find you feel greater security in yourself and more confirmed in your sense of direction. It is a time when you can create greater effectiveness for yourself, both in your private life and out there in the world too. You’ll find a better ability to connect, to communicate your feelings, needs, or vision, and to sort out what is most viable and worthy. In other words, you are hitting a good stride. Jupiter makes it easier now to gain from the best the moment has to offer.
If you find your ambition regarding financial security is growing, then you are heading in the right direction. Start a new initiative now, and Jupiter in Taurus will help you to build a substance financial cushion. This Jupiter placement increases self reliance and self consistency. It also a positive influence for the launch of a new business, for real estate investments, home renovations and such. Jupiter in Taurus can also find you devoting more quality attention to cultivating more satisfaction from home and family life too. That’s a very good plan!
The lunar eclipse on June 15 could deliver a change of direction or momentum. It can bring a departure, a visitor, an event, an announcement, an answer, or conclusion.
PISCES (Feb 19~March 20)
Despite missing blanks or question marks, start of the month can find you at a secure plateau. The solar eclipse on June 1 suggests family, home, and financial matters are at a fairly manageable plateau. Both Neptune (June 3) and Chiron (June 8) turn retrograde in Pisces. These planetary changes will increase your ability to stand back and observe which can lead to a more objective assessment of where you are at and where you are going.
Your confidence in your decision-making process can grow more secure now too. When it’s right, you’ll feel it and you’ll know it. Second guessing can simply waste your energy or time. Jupiter’s advance into Taurus (June 4) finds you even more expressive. You’ll naturally channel this resource into creativity, your social life, and your professional ambitions too. Over this next year, you’ll see friendships and sibling bonds strengthen. It appears you’ll gain a more loyal customer base or fan club too.
The lunar eclipse June 15 can bring family or professional circumstances, contracts, talks, negotiations, trial runs, real estate or other banking matters to a peak. Something you have strived for or worked toward for a long time could be coming together for you now. Congrats to graduates, new parents, new business owners, and the newly retired! There are many possibilities for how this full moon eclipse in Sagittarius can manifest. It could prompt you to do a complete overhaul of your life and/or move in an all together new direction professionally. The growing needs of a particular family member may need your extra attention. There can be special milestone to celebrate, a major trip, or other important plans ready to be launched. This eclipse can be especially catapulting for those born March 13 – 17. If you feel challenged by the lunar eclipse, know that once all the cards are on the table, resolution can be readily found. In fact, things may work out even better than you have envisioned.
